The friendly owner of the nearby second-hand bike retailer moved his storage to another location,so some odd bikes emerged from the "deep"...

I think it's an Austrian(?)fabrication from the late fifties/early sixties(?)
Check out the derailleurs and please note the original wooden-rims!
And we have a pair of stock-old hairnet-helmets in brand-new condition.
The brake levers and the handlebar-taping are practically unused (+ brake cables are obviously new) so I suppose they can not be original.
Brake-calipers&pads are from Weinmann,Cortina (I've never heard about this brand -if it was a brand?) rod-operated front and cable-operated rear derailleurs.

Well,we weren't able to figure out yet.
The stickers are lost or mainly damaged,mostly shapes can be seen. Here is the front-badge :?
